It's always the most wonderful time of the year at Holiday World! Every fall, our beautiful theme park, in the land of Santa, transforms into a Halloween playground. Holiday World's Happy Halloween Weekends continue Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20 & Saturday, October 26 and Sunday, October 27. Saturday hours: 11am to 8pm CDT, Sunday hours: 11am to 6pm CDT.

Knock on the creaky door and venture into SCAREbnb to experience Marilyn’s Mansion. Other guests have already arrived – Dracula’s Den is occupied by visitors who flew in early, Frankenstein is stretched out for a nap, a werewolf plays the piano, and … what’s that smell in the kitchen? SCAREbnb, Holiday World’s new family-friendly funhouse, is just spooky enough to tingle the spine, but won’t terrify even the weariest of travelers.

What else? The incredible Holidog’s 3D Halloween Adventure in our Holiday Theater. Pop on your free 3D glasses and help Holidog find his Halloween candy in this colorful funhouse!

We’ll amaze you with our 12 acres of corn mazes and hayrides!

Next, enjoy the hilarious LOL Halloween Magic Show, and then see and hear popular songs sung by the unlikeliest of creatures on our stage in The Monster Mash

Explore Carnival Chaos, as a ghostly barker invites you in to explore this abandoned carnival. It’s filled with clowns (or are they only reflections?) and side-show attractions. This series of mazes and “startles” is for older children and adults; it includes strobe lights and occasional loud noises.

Both afternoons include a costume dance party hosted by Kitty Claws, followed by trick-or-treating for children 12 and younger. Don’t forget to stop by and chat with Gourdon the Talking Pumpkin!

Children ages 2 and younger are always free
When temperatures dip below 60 degrees, we may close water-related rides.
In keeping with our G-rated park atmosphere, we do have a few rules for costume-wearers:

  • Family-friendly only, please – no blood, guts, gore, or revealing costumes
  • No masks and No weapons (real or fake)
  • When riding rides, you will need to remove any capes, hats, scarves, wigs, handheld props/accessories and anything else that might change the shape of your body or height
